Molly was an 11 year old red and white cocker spaniel. The sweetest little angel anyone could own. She was a joy to have in my home.
My best friend and loyal companion. She was patient and kind to old and young alike.

This animal was a gentle spirit. One eye was blue and the other was brown. She was only 19 pounds. During her younger years she played with toys and loved to run outdoors. Never met a stranger or chewed on anything. She travelled by car up and down the Eastern United States to visit my grandparents. Never got carsick.

She loved hamburgers and hot dogs. She liked nothing better than going to McDonalds. .....I tried treating her holistically for diabetes. All the expensive food and vitamins did not help. I feel so guilty I could not afford the insulin. I felt she deserved more.

She had grown really thin and had other health problems. I had to put her down two weeks ago. My heart just breaks for her. I wish she could live forever! May you rest in peace my little friend! I love you "Angel Puff".

Losing a treasured pet is as losing a loved family member

Hi Donna,

I can really feel your sorrow, it was one of the most devastating days of my life when we had to put Archer, our 9 year old Border collie, to sleep 2 years ago. Now I have lost my Precious Husband 3 weeks ago and I am reeling from that.

I always told him that when he went (he has been sick for some time) I was going to get another puppy and call it Jed as those were his initials. Next week I am picking up my new puppy, a Golden Retriever and he is my new Jed.

Death is so final and takes a lot of work to recover from. I didn't feel the time was right to get another dog as I nursed my Darling husband and I was still grieving for Archer. Now I am excited about this new puppy, so the time is right. Your right time will come also and you may wish to get another puppy. You will never replace Molly, but you will start a new journey with your next puppy.

Take care. Lynne
